Having never done the blinker mod myself, I'm probably not gonna be much help....

But, I would un-do the blinker mod & put your wiring back to stock first.
After you have them back to stock, replace the fuses & check the turn signals to make sure they're back to normal.

If your dash lights are still out, you may have blown the dash illumination bulbs. Simple to replace, hard to get to.

Once you're sure the bulbs are good, try the blinker mod again, making sure to triple check all the connections against the how-to to make sure nothing is connected incorrectly.

From the original post, it sound like either something is shorting out or isn't connected properly, feeding back into the dash lighting circuit... check your headlight, 4x4 and/or fog light switches to see if they're out or blink with the turn signals, they should be on the same circuit as the cluster lights. If they blink with the dash lights, you've got something wired incorrectly.

Lastly, do you have led bulbs in the turn signals or dash?
I don't think the blinker mod will work properly with led's.

checked fuses that correlate with the book and replaced them regardless of broken or not

1. get a wiring diagram for your tuck

2. find the wires that run the lights

3. start checking the wires in your truck.

4. if they are good you may have more off a problem witch i hope not.

i will look and see what i can find out for you as far as the wiring goes
